NDT - Article of the week
An update on cancer after kidney transplantation
Cancer is one of the most  severe of the potential complications following kidney transplantation. Post-transplant malignancy poses the dilema for a nephrologist as to whether immunosuppression should be reduced, weighing the risk of rejection against cancer outcome. This Review by Cheung et al. discusses the bidirectional relationship between CKD and cancer, and provides guidance  for the management of cancer in kidney transplant recipients.
The paper is accessible here free of charge until this Sunday at 23.59 (UK time). Do not miss it!
